Product Description

Review

Rising star of both the keyboard and the conductor's podium, Steven Devine follows his acclaimed Chandos recording of Purcell's Dido and Aeneas with this fine interpretation of the Goldberg Variations. He brings a scholarly authority to this pillar of the repertoire, offering in his sleeve notes many insights into Bach's thinking behind the 30 variations, an authority he matches with a masterly technique at the keyboard, turning this into a bravura display of the harpsichordist's art. Highly recommended.*** --The Observer,12/06/11

Devine's harpsichord Goldbergs can stand among the best in a crowded field. --Gramophone,Sept'11

Devine's chandos account is.... striking for its brilliance of attack and fertility of imagination.Clearly his realization is the product of detailed preperation and scholorship.I'd be more than happy to live with this splendid performance. --IRR,Sept'11

5.0 out of 5 stars JS Bach - goldberg variations 21 April 2013
By r.b.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In a market place flooded with recordings of Bach's goldberg variations one must wonder if there is any need for yet another version.Just on harpsichord alone (not taking into account the modern piano) there is a vast quantity of cd's available by some very distinguished players all trying to convince that their version is definitive.So how does this 2010 recording from Steven Devine fair in a saturated market? Well in my view it's easily among the finest reading's to date - Steven Devine not only plays with impeccable ability but tremendous insight into making the goldbergs as cohesive as possible.He never allows certain movements to splash cold water in your face so to speak but presents the whole work as a portrait of different colours that blend into one.I feel he must also be praised for his tempo gauging as the speeds he adopts are SENSIBLE and in all likelihood very close to actual Baroque authenticity.

With terrific recorded sound this is a highly recommendable version for those looking at a harpsichord performance of Bach's superb variations for their library.It should also be noted that the harpsichord used here is a copy of a 1710 Fleischer and it's nice to see more and more Bach recordings played on German harpsichords.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb double manual version 18 Mar 2013
By billg
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a superb performance of one of Bach's masterworks. For those used to piano versions, a whole new aspect of the pieces is brought out in this harpsichord version, in particular the use of a double manual harpsichord, where the manuals are swapped for the repeats. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best ever version of Bach 3 Oct 2011
By peter
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have always disliked the piano versions of Goldberg for being over-stated. Of the dozens of versions I have heard this is by far my favourite, mainly because it is played on a harpsicord which I think far better suits the music. The pace is slower than some piano version which means you can hear and enjoy the music, rather than be dazzled by the technique. The recording quality is superb - crisp, rich and deep, with beautifully captured bass tones giving the whole cd a lovely warm sound.
